I want to share my thoughts on coordinating complementary colours! That is, using the main colour of your dress or skirt and pairing it with one other colour that complements the first. For this method, you can either choose colours in the print or choose some other colour that you think match nicely. A really good way is thinking about what other colours the print came in. So for instance, Magical Etoile from Angelic Pretty came in pink, sax, red and black (then an additional mint and navy from the second release). Matching navy with red would be a cute, simple mix. Or pink and sax, pink and mint, black and pink, etc.

In this second coordinate, I chose a colour that's neither in the print nor another colourway of this print. If you have read my previous posts, you'll know just how much I love the navy and lavender mix. This is just something purely from my mind and what I think matches nicely.
If you're not sure what colours look nice together, try using a colour wheel. The theory behind this is that colours that are: 1) directly opposite, 2) form a triangle or 3) directly next to each other will match. This is just a really simple way to make a cute coordinate that's not too complicated but still really aesthetically pleasing. What do you think? How do you like to coordinate colours?
